Eight Co-Curricular Zones

Confidence building, participation, resilience and friendship. Co-curricular at Leighton Park has taken on different guises across the generations of Leightonians, but one thing remains a constant: our commitment to providing experiential learning opportunities which develop important skills in our students and form part of the bespoke character education profile of our School. We are an inclusive, kind and caring school which ensures this is within everyone’s reach.

Students are at the heart of everything we do, and we believe in everyone’s potential to realise their interests and talents. We listen closely to our students to reflect their passions and preferences and offer a dynamic termly programme.

Our Co-Curricular Zones

Extend your intellect. Enrich your leaning and explore your passion for your favourite subjects.

Value your community. Making a difference, helping others and giving back is part of who we are as a School.

Develop your interests. Joining with like-minded students is a rewarding way to expand your awareness and build your experience.

Follow your dreams. Get involved and be inspired through our creative dance, drama, art and textiles departments.

Reach for the stars. Make some noise with our instrumental specialists, small and large ensembles, orchestra, choirs, animation, music production and music tech.

Master new talents. Take up a new hobby or build on existing skills; a fantastic way to relax and unwind whilst learning something different.

Give it your all. A variety of traditional sports and interesting options for every level of sporting prowess.

Experiment and discover. Supporting budding engineers, designers, scientists and programmers to experiment, explore and create.

Challenging students through expeditions and a focus on physical capability, skills and voluntary service for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.

Whether you’re a talker; whether you’re a listener, it doesn’t matter what point of view you have or what age you are…I think that’s what everyone likes about it. There’s no pressure to be anything; you can just be there.”

Queralt, Lower Sixth, Philosophy Club member
